well here we are at the end of yet another year. once again full of joyful moments but outweighed yet again by moments of total devastation.
sadly i think this is how it will always be as long as we continue to run an animal rescue.
honestly there have been so many points this year when i have sobbed and yelled no more.. no more animals, no more upset, but each time we sit down and wonder if we give up doing our small part just how many animals will be lost, forgotten, beaten, broken and never feel warmth and kindness?
so we trudge on.
2013 has made me realise a good few things about myself which i am seeing as a huge step forward and will certainly use this new found wisdom *ahem* as i tentatively step in to 2014 whilst holding my breath and hoping for happier days...
i now know that i am not a maker or should i say not a maker that sells things. i do not like it one bit apart from the social side of meeting and chatting to lovely folk, so 2014 will see me creating things for sure but not with an eye to selling them.
i now know for sure that i prefer to disappear in to the background, to stay at home, to care for those around me, to nest, to grow things, to slowly and gently go about my days.
i now know for sure who my friends are. who i can trust to stand by me in a storm. i am *very* blessed.
i now know for sure that we have everything we need. we may be poor as church mice but we have each other and we are thankful.
so 2014 you are waiting just round the corner and i am pleased.
i will step in to you smiling, holding my hopes and plans carefully in my hands and hoping that they come true.
there are already two projects in the pipeline which are hugely exciting and more than a bit scary, both require me to become a little more motivated and actually push to make them happen. seeing as this is not a strong talent in this household i may be leaning on all of you for a little support, a little cheer, or some kindly soul to give me a stern talking to and swift boot up the backside (looking at you for this my sue) xxxx
cheerio 2013 you have been a tough one emotionally but a good one for personal growth
hello 2014 - what do you have in store for us?
blessings and happiness for 2014 to all that stop by here
